Medical Plans for those under 65 years of age
Due to health care ‘reform’, Americans are no longer free to buy insurance whenever they’d like. Permanent Medical Coverage can only be purchased during the Annual Enrollment Period (November 1st – December 15th) barring a Special Event (marriage, birth of a child, loss of group coverage, etc.)
Short Term (Temporary) Medical Plans are a potential option for those not currently eligible to enroll in permanent coverage.
- COBRA is normally the best coverage available. There are few PPO networks left in the individual market, as most plans are now HMOs. I think that COBRA is more stable than the individual market. In November major cost and benefit changes will be announced that will impact all for 2017.
